Post Joystick Control Other than Tank Drive
My FTC team does know how to set up joystick controls for a tank drive, however with our robot we need very precise movements. With the tank drive system if you slow down either one of the joysticks, the opposite will obviously be running at a faster speed, thus the precise measurements needed are difficult to come by. However, the solution we believe is to have joystick 2 on controller 1 to operate the forward and backward motion only and joystick 1 (left side) on controller 1 to operate the tank spin, which would theoretically be achieved by moving the joystick left and right. However, we are stumped as how to do this? For when the joystick was moved to the left or right the robot would correspond by driving both the left and right side motors in opposite directions in the desired directions to achieve either a left or right turn. Could someone please explain. :?

Thanks.
